Grateful Dead Live at Dream Bowl on 1969-02-21
Editing and CD mastering by The Wizard - Owenbrothersvault@hotmail.com
Most info on this shows a cassette generation or two but this one does not appear to have one...there are no cassette flips at the usual spots! May have another reel generation though. Music was very slow (offspeed recorder somewhere in the history). I increased the speed by 4% and this sounded pretty good. Didn't want to go too far. Used a light continuous noise filter to remove a bit of the tape hiss. Cleaned up a few assorted pops and gliches... There was distortion in Good Morning Little Schoolgirl that could not be improved. All editing done with Diamond Cut Millennium software.

The rest of this show is fantastic also. GREAT Dark Star, and a stunning Morning Dew encore.
Be sure to get the Miller version though, it's a significant upgrade!

"Not the least bit concerned with commercial success, the GRATEFUL DEAD play their hearts out with their classic renditions of our most popular songs from 1969."
The exact opposite is true. The fact is that Warner Brothers recorded this entire tour in an attempt to capture material for Live/Dead, so the band could recoup some of the massive debt incurred when recording Anthem. The effort they put into this tour is aimed at getting good performances for the live album.

That said, these are slick, hot, sweet, and yes, sick jams at this bowling alley. The 2nd night is a little better quality. Performance: A. Quality: B. Thanks to those back then (Bear, Matthews, et al.) who taped these gems.
Subject: Time to get ILL
I was born in 1971 and was not lucky enough to go to a show until 1992, so I missed the best times.
Nonetheless, I can appreciate awesomeness when I hear it. The Dead's sound in 1969 was sublime. They were raw, full of vigor and the exploratory energy of youth. Though it can be argued that technique improves with age, nothing compares to the passion of youth.
So let's all bring back the good times people. It is not too late to go back to the past and learn what we have forgotten or were never taught.
Better learn to duck, cause we are gonna need it to survive in this Orwellian future. There are not enough of us to fight amongst ourselves!
Saying a show is "sick" means that it is so good it makes you ill! I am sorry you have never heard of this before. You were very lucky to have seen the Dead, but you were just another 2nd generation hippy that didn't see Pigpen or Keith, so that dosen't mean much to me. I love shows from the '82-'86 era, but you weren't seeing the "sick" shows of the 60's and 70's so I wouldn't act like you are some true Deadhead.
Since we're learning things here...did you know "Teabaging" is a slang term that means you like to put your balls in other mens mouths while they sleep? HAHAHA THAT'S YOUR NAME! TEABAGGER! HAHAHA!
Sure, I was born in '85 and I've only seen the Dead and Ratdog, but I have over 600 shows on CD and I probably know more about the history of the Dead than you do. Can you even tell me what amps or effects pedals Garcia used? Don't be a douche Teabagger. It dosen't even really matter how much you know, just how much you love the Dead. You need to chill out Teabagger! Like when I think of "true" Deadhead I think of a guy dressed in a Hessian Revolutionary War uniform dancing in Golden Gate Park in 1967. Or maybe someone who attended Watkins Glen, Winterland shows from '69, or the Euro Tour of '72. Not you Teabagger. Keep your balls out of people's mouths!

Your type is exactly what's wrong with the "scene" and why it is pretty much dead.
Pipgpen at his finest on Lovelight. Morning Dew---amazing cresendo at the end.
Subject: SICK SHOW!
and on and on. People of all types use descriptive adjectives to imply different things. Like the word "BADASS" back in the 80's when you were on tour BADASS was one of those words. As in BADASS show--the show had no real badasses (besides the Hells Angels) but badass describes something that was extraordinary. Remember ever hearing the words "Cats Pajamas" or "Bee's Knees"? I would not say that anymore yet it was in total fashion when our parents were kicking around. There are plenty of words that we will not understand that our kids and their friends will kick at us that will go over our heads.
SICK is a completely on the money adjective in my opinion to describe this set. SICK!!!
Dude, don't bag on people because you don't understand them or call them gay. NOT COOL. You should know that by now. You should have learned that somewhere on the road (to unlimited devotion) back during those 118 shows.
PEACE and LIGHT!
Subject: Please Clarify
Please help out us true deadheads kids, save the slang for the Pearl Jam forum, this is the Grateful Dead. There is a big difference. Very big.
I have had most of '69 on tape for years and I recommend both Vallejo shows highly. As othjers have said this is one of the very hot Eleven's of all-time.
